Engineering ABET accreditation and collaboration with the library

This looks like a good report, “Addressing ABET Program Outcome ‘i’: A First-Year Engineering Program and Library Instruction Initiative Collaboration” by Debbie Morrow, Grand Valley State University.

Grand Valley’s School of Engineering recently invited the University Libraries to collaborate in an effort to address ABET outcome ‘i’, engaging in lifelong learning, in one of their first year core courses. The Libraries have recently developed an “Information Literacy Core Competencies” document, evolving out of the ACRL IL competencies standard adopted in 2000. Our collaboration has so far been a great exercise in exploring the effective intersection of ABET ‘i’ and information literacy competencies, in the context of incorporation into an existing course in GVSU’s first-year engineering curriculum.
